Base Damage

(Redirected from Weapon Damage)
For character base damage, see Damage Calculations.

Base Damage refers to the statistic shown on the Animal Lore gump of an animal or monster. According to a footnote on each page of the bestiary section of the Playguide:

"Base Damage is not the total amount of damage a creature can inflict on its foe; it merely shows the amount of damage it is capable of doing without taking into consideration the level of its skills and stats. Skills and stats (Strength, Anatomy, Tactics, etc.) add bonuses to the base damage."

Oddly enough, the more Strength a creature has, the higher it's base damage rating will climb.
